Waiting On Wednesday: Ash and Bramble by Sarah Prineas

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine, and it gives you a chance to spotlight a book that you are eagerly waiting to be released.








This week, I picked:

Ash & Bramble
By Sarah Prineas
Publication Date: September 15, 2015















From Goodreads:

When the glass slipper just doesn’t fit…

The tale of Cinderella has been retold countless times. But what you know is not the true story.

Pin has no recollection of who she is or how she got to the Godmother’s fortress. She only knows that she is a Seamstress, working day in and out to make ball gowns fit for fairy tales. But she longs to forsake her backbreaking servitude and dares to escape with the brave young Shoemaker.

Pin isn’t free for long before she’s captured again and forced to live the new life the Godmother chooses for her—a fairy tale story, complete with a charming prince—instead of finding her own happily ever after.

Sarah Prineas’s bold fairy tale retelling is a dark and captivating world where swords are more fitting than slippers, young shoemakers are just as striking as princes, and a heroine is more than ready to rescue herself before the clock strikes midnight.


Why I picked it:

I'm rather fond of fairy tales and fairy tale retellings, and I think that this one sounds extra awesome. I've never thought about the Fairy Godmother not being as nice as she seemed before, and I think it'll be a nice twist on the classic that we all know and love.
